KING TUT IN MUNICH
Tomb and Treasures of Tutankhamun Exhibition
Archived - Sorry- Tut Moved On

King Tutankahmun Exhibition photoThe magnificent burial tomb of the boy Pharaoh Tutankhamen is recreated in amazing detail at Munich’s event arena at the Olympia Park, covering 4,000 square meters. Visitors of all ages will have a chance to experience the magic and exotic mysteries of Ancient Egypt in the Bavarian capital city from April 9 until August 30, 2009. Artifacts of the mummified buried royal mystery man have been traveling the world on a grand farewell tour for several years, from London to the Czech Republic and next to Germany before returning to his homeland for a permanent rest. For the Munich incarnation of the exhibition burial artifacts and treasures have been replicated in museum quality copies to adorn the inner tombs of the burial chamber, like an adventure into the past, replicating the experience of the discovery of the tomb 86 years ago, by English antiquities explorer Howard Carter. These are however, not the real treasures of King Tut, which must remain behind atmosphere controlled high security museum settings, the exhibition project Tutankhamen – His Tomb and his Treasures is intended reveal a new perspective for visitors to relive the fascinating story of the excavation in 3 dimensions, unfolding like a novel.

Burton photosOver ten years during the original discovery in 1922, but Howard Carter, as the treasures of Tutankhamen were moved from the tomb to the museum display, photographer Harry Burton recorded the tomb and excavations on giant glass photographic plates, eventually almost 3,000 negatives, documenting in painstaking detail the world’s introduction to the young Egyptian king who died under still mysterious circumstances. It is this factual record that the exhibition follows in telling its story.
